A Whole Festival Full of Baguettes

Here’s a thing where five bakeries dole out samples of their finest bread to see who makes the best baguette in Miami. While judges deliberate, you’ll be eating your way through the contestants’ offerings and pairing them with gratis wine, cheese and charcuterie. You win.

Nu Deco Does Prince

Take a symphony, put them in a cool Wynwood warehouse, give them a bunch of Prince songs and voilà—Nu Deco Ensemble’s season finale at the Light Box. You haven’t lived until you’ve heard a violinist shred on “When Doves Cry.” Probably.

Apr 15, 5pm (open bar 7-9pm), no cover, Nancy, 2007 SW 8th St, 305-397-8971

Easter Brunch Goes Full <em>Alice in Wonderland</em> at Nikki Beach

On Easter morning, wake up, head to Nikki Beach’s Alice in Wonderland mad tea party brunch, sit at a Queen of Hearts–themed table, drink from a giant teacup, eat omelets and waffles from the brunch buffet, scoop up eggs from the adult egg hunt and sip your boozy prize. Yeah, do that.

Ginger Harris

On a typical Wednesday, Ginger Harris is likely seeking reposado tequila, squeezing her way to the front of a concert or jumping on the back of an Indian motorcycle. That’s just Wednesdays, though.
